How can an absence of telephone number verification potentially harm consumers?
Robocalls harm consumers every day. They also harm consumer confidence in voice calls, which hampers the ability of companies to reach customers on the phone. With the rise in unwanted robocalls, 71% of consumers said they stopped answering their phone completely.
In 2021, a missing hiker, lost in the mountains of Colorado, ignored repeated calls from rescuers because the calls came from an unrecognized number. While the hiker ultimately found safety, he could have been rescued earlier if he had answered the call.
